Sunday Sleaze Special


Cheeky. Interesting for the lawyers too. This one will run and run.

Meanwhile the Sunday Telegraph reports Patrick Mercer convinced Keith Vaz, Valerie Vaz, Julien Brazier, Mark Field and Fabian Hamilton to join his Fiji APPG. And the Sunday Times has stung Lords Laird, Cunningham & MacKenzie.

“Lord Cunningham, Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate and Lord Laird offered to become paid advocates for a firm pushing for new laws to benefit its business. They also said they could set up an all party parliamentary group as a lobbying vehicle.”

No wonder Labour were so quiet on Friday.

It will be damaging to the Government, so it must involve figures from the Conservative party (no one would give a hoot if a Lib-Dem was shagging a giraffe in Trafalgar Square). Both parties must be prominent as a male prominente doodling a mere piece of office furniture would not be news.

    Anyone else wondering if this could be related to Coulson’s surprise re-emergence? His unsolicited suggestion that Sam, by suddenly taking a more prominent role, might help save Dave’s political bacon might be a clue. Tho’, if it leads back to a certain former `friend’ and (still) neighbour, it’s game over.

Anyway, when I got home they were missing. They’re the black ones, with white lace and red labour roses and the words “I Hate You” embroidered on the front. If you find them, can you send them back to me.

    The suggestion is that it will be so damaging for Cameron, not “for the government” or “for the Conservative Party”. If it were damaging to the party, the impact could be forgotten by the time of the election. If its damaging to Cameron then he might no longer lead the party.

    So could be related to Cameron’s judgment. It may be an affair that won’t be of enormous interest outside the Westminster village, but could trigger a move against Cameron within the party.

    What judgment has he exercised recently, which upset some in the party? Which judgment related to matters of policy? How about the appointment of an old Etonian to head the policy unit?

    And who might the woman be? If it were SamCam that would be difficult personally, but why would it derail policy initiatives? A Murdoch connection would create greater political difficulties.

    “JoJo and Beks” probably wouldn’t create a huge scandal around the country, but it would enrage backbenchers who already question Cameron’s judgment.

    Samantha Cameron and Boris Johnson. Correct.

    The Daily Mail say David Cameron was “stunned” and publish a photo of him with his wife Samantha. That’s a very old newspaper trick. Remember Jack Straw’s son getting busted for drugs, and Prince Charles’s gay lover Michael Facwett. Lots of photos in both cases.

    The Torygraph say “it is believed that David Cameron has been told about the affair – which has also caused those involved personal distress“.

    It’s obvious that if two people have an affair that they want kept quiet, and it leaks out, then they’re going to be caused distress. The above sentence got ‘lawyered’, and instead of of “those involved”, the original phrasing was “him”. That is, it said that the affair has caused Cameron personal distress. Repeat, *personal* distress.

    The picture of the front of the mail is given the file name, http://orderorder.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/acrb.png by Guido. What does the ‘acrb’ bit at the end mean, or could it be the initials of the two having the affair – ac and rb – not cabinet members, but very, very close to Cameron. Both now up in court for offences to do with hacking phones?

    Not very good judgement by Cameron – he looks like he’s got no judgement and had been puppeted by News International all along!

    Ah, think I’ve got it – Alexander Cameron (PM’s older brother) and the flame-haired harpie. Alexander was an ‘exact contemporary’ (as the Evening Standard observed in an article about a week ago) of Charlie Brooks at Eton.

    Except that such an affair, though it would be embarrassing for the PM, doesn’t quite live up to the hype.

  646. 646

    The context and all the language point to it being within No 10 on both sides and being mega politically embarrassing so there is a policy dimension

    Hypothetical Speculator says:

    If the initials “acrb” are indicative, then one might speculate that Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks may possibly fit the bill. That would indeed be embarrassing for Dave, in view of his Downing Street appointment of Coulson and his friendship with Rebekah.

    The “political complication” alluded to by the MoS might refer to the issue of post-Leveson press regulation, which would certainly be affected, in ways that can only be surmised at this stage. It is an issue that the Mail group have been campaigning on, hence their interest in breaking the story.

    Just speculating, of course. However, if the “ac” intials turn out to refer to Alastair Campbell — now that really would get interesting…

    And on reflection must compliment [partly] The Sunday Telegraph for its expose about them APPG’s. The jolly’s foreign trips all expenses covered etc.

    Only one minor prob though – when the ST gave examples of previous dodgy lobbying – they recalled one without naming the prog [Dispatches] of March 2010 and proceeded to name the three former Labour Ministers caught in the spotlight – namely Hoon, Byers and Hewitt – suprise, suprise then in these open and transparent [as mud < ref Hewitt] times that the fourth man caught in the spotlight and not named in the ST article was Sir John Butterfill – who didn't get his Lord Gong and has retired off to Portugal …

    Now didn't I mention an APPG some weeks ago – its chair being Lord Ahmed who has recently resigned from Parliament. The said APPG being S.A.F.E. Struggle Against Financial Exploitation no less … and are there links through Richard Dyson MOS / Law Firm Messers (Hilary Messer £1million pulled in fees which led to nothing) / SAMS (scams) mortgages which Briclays and SHBC would rather be left swept under the carpet / Members such as Byers Streeter, Cable and others. The Safe one was running from about 2002 until about 2005 when it got somehow 'kicked into the long grass' and just before the 2008 banking crash.

    Back to the ST – they state today that "The groups do not have to publish minutes of their meetings …". However when joe public is lucky enough to legally [Please note] get his hands on a particular set of minutes and join up all the dots of deception some years later – isn't there of course going to be a "Cross-Party cover up" a) to protect the jolly ones and b) the conniving banksters?

    Possibly his gilded upbringing led him to be wary enough of sychophantic strangers but did not prepare him for also being let down by people closer to.

    I don’t dislike him. He just seems weak to me, and he shares few of the British values I want to see in a British Prime Minister. Politically, he is a fraud, as he is no Conservative.

    ‘Cheeky’? Clearly someone’s been doing Gabriela Irimia, whom they would have met through Opik. ‘Run and run’? Ming was an athlete in his youth, so it must be him. I take it Dave is having crisis talks because MI6 views the cheeky girls as some sort of Romanian honey-trap.

    I’ll guess Boris Johnson and Louise Mensch. Its allegedly a big one but not a cabinet minister. That puts Boris in the frame. Louise Mensch packing it in struck me at the time as a scandal, though I thought it may be she knew of one.

    Taking the hypothesis that it was Boris Johnson and Louise Densch, I presume the general state of play in the Conservative Party was ‘Good Old Boris’ and she was persona non grata.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
